|The Department of Public Health is giving notice of intent to award a contract as a sole source to: GL Suites, Inc. The Illinois Department of Public Health's Division of Environmental Health (EH) processes thousands of license entities (including but not limited to individuals, businesses, and sites) statewide. EH continues to need an electronic system to manage the many license types and programs it oversees. GL Solutions provides proprietary software (GL Suite) that IDPH is currently utilizing. This new contract is needed to perform an upgrade to the newest version of GL Suite as the current version is reaching end of life. Also, the contract will allow for maintenance & licensing of the existing databases and newly upgraded databases. |
The General Engineering Program licenses Migrant Labor Camps, Youth Camps, Campgrounds, Manufactured Housing Installers & Manufacturers, and Manufactured Home Communities. The Program currently uses a Microsoft Access database to support program activities. IDPH is seeking to develop and migrate the existing data into the GL Suite application so that licensees can take advantage of the features (such as on-line renewal, real-time licensure data, etc.) that is currently utilized in other programs. The contract will also allow for the commencement of development that will allow for this migration.
